No. 232 of 1882.—Petition of Hohepa Mataitaua.
Petitioner claims to have had an interest in certain lands at Maketu, sold to Government by Hawira Make and asserts that, while Hawira Make was paid he was not. He asks for land or money.
I am directed to report as follows:—
That the Committee has no information before it to warrant advising to go behind the awards of the Compensation Court.
The subject of how to deal with special claims must be left to the consideration of the Government.
No. 232 of 1882.—Pukapuka-inoi a Hohepa Mataitaua.
E Ki ana te kai-pitihana i whai take ia ki etahi whenua i Maketu, ko aua whenua i hokona ki te Kawanatanga e Hawira Make, na, i utua a Hawira Make, ko ia ko te kai-pitihana kaore i utua; heoi e tono ana ia kia hoatu he whenua he moni ranei ki a ia.
Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei:—
Kaore he korero i te aroaro o te Komiti e tika ai kia hoki ki muri i nga whakatau a te Kooti Whakarite Taonga whakarite tikanga ai. Ko te tikanga whakahaere i enei tu tono me waiho ma te Kawanatanga e whakaaro.
